Olga Raffault is a classic estate based in the Loire Valley.  It has been in operation since the 40's and is still family owned and operated.  Olga's granddaughter and her husband took over the estate 10 years ago and still uphold the traditional practices.  Like the more renowned Les Picasses, Les Peuilles is a lieu-dit close to the village of Beaumont-En-Véron, but it is to the south of town, closer to the Vienne river. It is a plateau rather than a hillside and features soils of clay and flint rather than limestone. The fruit is organically farmed and hand-harvested and destemmed without crushing. The whole berries are fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tank, with a shorter maceration compared to that of Picasses. Aging takes place in 70-hectoliter oak and chestnut foudres for 6-12 months, with another year or two in bottle before release. 

Grape: Cabernet Franc 

Soil: flint & clay

Viticulture: Certified Organic
